We did the breakfast package since it was only a few dollars more with than without. The food was definitely industrial school type, but edible. Had fun watching the ground squirrels run around outside while we ate. Grammy was nervous, so did the enclosed gondola...More

If one buys tickets online in advance does that allow for priority in line? We would be there on June 30th, so I am imagining it will be busy.
